Wayne Raymond Trull
April 3, 1956- July 11, 2021
Wayne Raymond Trull, age 65, passed away at his home in Vancouver, Washington on July 11, 2021, with his wife by his side. Wayne was born April 3, 1956 in McMinnville, Oregon, and was raised in Dayton, Oregon by his parents Louie Berry and Joan Overgard. Wayne was the oldest of three boys, and often told stories about his life growing up on a farm. At the age of 18 Wayne enlisted in the United States Army where he served from 1974 to 1981, traveling between the United States and Germany during his time in service. After the Army, Wayne settled in Yamhill County, Oregon where he married Lori Harris and had two children, Josh and Whitney.
Wayne’s love of culinary introduced him to his trade where he worked as a cook and then as Chef for various restaurants throughout Oregon. Asked about his favorite job he would tell you it was working for Paradise Lodge up the Rogue River in Agness, Oregon. It was there that he spent many summers fervently working and enjoying the peace nature brought him there.
Wayne was also a skilled woodworker, a hobby for which he was able to create beautiful furniture pieces, and breathe new life into aged furniture over the years.
In 2006, Wayne married WanEllin Friend in a small ceremony surrounded by close friends. They mostly remained in Yamhill County until November of 2019 when they ventured out of state to try their luck in Vancouver, Washington where he resided until his passing.
Wayne is preceded in death by his parents, and his brothers, Sean and Tony Berry.
He is survived by his wife, WanEllin, his children Whitney, and Josh, his stepsons Roger, and Juan and his wife Cassie, and his many grandchildren.
A private family celebration of his life will be held in his honor at a later date.
